The free analysis report represents a sub-set of the Symphony Service solution that Attune provides and the abbreviated report will analyse and provide insights about data usage and heterogeneous server performance based on several parameters such as CPU utilisation and file aging.
For the qualified customers, Attune or a reseller partner will provide a temporary out-of-band deployment of Attune's Maestro File Manager FM5500, which will monitor and analyse the customer's environment. The resulting deliverable will include a summary report along with observations and comments regarding how customers can optimise the placement of their data and existing file storage resources.
"These reports allow system administrators to see how their file servers and NAS resources are being loaded over time, as well as to understand data access and utilisation in a meaningful way,” says Daniel Liddle, Attune's vice-president of marketing.
Customer candidates with predominantly Common Internet File System (CIFS)-based unstructured file data in heterogeneous environments will have priority for the offer. Recipients of the free service will also have the option to upgrade to the full Symphony Service package and/or to purchase the Attune Maestro File Manager for full-scale file virtualisation, including custom namespace, non-disruptive file migration, policy-based data management and automated disruption avoidance.
